Stents - a Memory of Worthing.

My great-grandad, George Stent, ran the livery stables in Ann Street, shown on the right-hand side of the Town Hall, until the motor car put him out of business. His brother, John Stent, operated as a 'fly proprietor' from 4 Alfred Place, Worthing. When motor cars came along he sold his business to Wortax.

This is very interesting! I recently started my family tree and found that George Stent was my Great-Great-Great Grandad! His son Enoch Stent was my Grandad's Grandad who I believe was also an entrepreneur in the carriage trade. I would be very interested to read any other info you might have on the family.
